Six die in Kaduna road accident


 

A Volkswagen Golf three vehicle with six passengers rammed into a trailer load of goats and local chickens that fell across the Kaduna-Abuja road in Gonigora, Kaduna, killing eight travellers, while several others sustained various degrees of injuries on Monday night.

However, the livestock survived the crash as they were seen roaming the road freely.

According to one of the injured persons, who spoke to newsmen, “the golf three vehicle was over speeding. His headlights were not bright, as he was with full speed. The time he discovered that a trailer fell across the road, it was already too late.”

The dead persons were evacuated to a morgue, while the injured were taken to hospital for treatment.

The Kaduna State Sector Commander of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) did not pick his calls, just as he did not respond to text messages sent to him.
